Synopsis

Karnstein Castle, an ominous, threatening ruin overlooks an exclusive finishing school for girls where Richard Lestrange (Ralph Bates) takes up the post of English teacher. He falls in love with one of the pupils, the beautiful, enigmatic Mircalla Karnstein (Yutte Stensgaard). A spate of mysterious deaths at the school is hastily covered up but when the father of one of the dead girls opens her grave he discovers the vampire bite. The Karnstein legend continues. Every forty years they rise from their graves spreading their evil vampirism and terror. The villagers descend on the school demanding blood. Richard rushes to warn Mircalla but as they embrace she opens her mouth to bite his neck as... the burnt-through beam crashes down, burying itself into Mircalla's heart.

This is almost like soft porn, rather than a horror film. Not as good as Twins of Evil or The Vampire Lovers. I'm sure even the presence of Peter Cushing couldn't save this one.
